Bottle 0.5l. Hazy orange with big fluffy head. Light aroma with notes of caramel and some fruitiness. Bitter-sweet flavor, some fruitiness, notes of caramel and herbs, quite balanced. Light carbonation, light to medium-bodied. A bit old but still OK and very easy to drink.

500ml bottle serves in a pint. A: Pours a sightly cloudy light amber color forming a medium off white bubbled head with good retention and lots of thin spotty lacings left in the glass. S: Classic English Bitter. Strong notes of caramel and grassy hops. Metallic hints. Fruity notes. Flowery and herby finish. T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of toffee, caramel malts, crystal malts followed by a very herby, and grassy, and citrus hops bitterness. In overall, the taste is dry and light bitter. Hints of resin and grapes. M: Light watery body. Medium carbonation. Caramel and grassy hops in the aftertaste. O: Good drinkability. Classic Bitter.
